Chapter 26



  Of David.
O Lord, be my judge, for my behaviour has been upright: I have put my faith in the Lord, I am not in danger of slipping.  





  Put me in the scales, O Lord, so that I may be tested; let the fire make clean my thoughts and my heart.  





  For your mercy is before my eyes; and I have gone in the way of your good faith.  





  I have not taken my seat with foolish persons, and I do not go with false men.  





  I have been a hater of the band of wrongdoers, and I will not be seated among sinners.  





  I will make my hands clean from sin; so will I go round your altar, O Lord;  





  That I may give out the voice of praise, and make public all the wonders which you have done.  





  Lord, your house has been dear to me, and the resting-place of your glory.  





  Let not my soul be numbered among sinners, or my life among men of blood;  





  In whose hands are evil designs, and whose right hands take money for judging falsely.  





  But as for me, I will go on in my upright ways: be my saviour, and have mercy on me.  





  I have a safe resting-place for my feet; I will give praise to the Lord in the meetings of the people.
